A case of contralateral ureteral metastasis from renal cell carcinoma is reported. A 52-year-old man underwent left nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma of November 20, 1986. He was clinically asymptomatic for 4 years 8 months after the operation. He was admitted on August 14, 1991, because of right loin pain. Right retrograde pyelography and percutaneous pyelography showed a filling defect in the right ureter at the level of L3. After the right ureter was explored, the tumor lesion of ureter was resected and end to end anastomosis of the ureter was performed. Histopathologic examination showed a metastatic clear cell carcinoma consistent with a renal primary. The contralateral ureteral metastasis from renal cell carcinoma is very rare and only 15 cases have been reported previously.
